  • Second color episode and the last to feature second host Dave Dee

    9.5
    Strong performances for the most part, although Bobbie Gentry's brand of pop country seems a bit out of place on a show that's primary focus is progressive and album oriented rock. In fact her performance is a bit painful and very un-hip for the time (and even more so now). The filmed segments concentrate on an, either aborted or short lived, attempt to put Radio Caroline on TV (TV Caroline) and features a performance from Atomic Rooster with Carl Palmer behind the drum kit and short music clips from Keith Emerson and the Nice (forshadowing?). While most of the performances are live, both Jethro Tull and Joe Cocker are miming their recordings (Cocker's performances may have been recorded earlier as it is still in black and white). Dave Dee also makes is last appearance at the beginning of the show, never to appear again and after this episode. A very good episode marred only by the inclusion of Bobby Gentry.moreless
